NFL rumors: Raiders to London in 2019? It's an option, has been discussed

Where in the world will the Raiders play their home games next season?

No one knows right now, but a very interesting option was presented on Sunday.

According to Fox Sports' Jay Glazer, London is on the table for the Raiders.

"Right now they are talking about maybe staying in Oakland, at the baseball park, playing at the 49ers' stadium, outside shot in San Diego. But there's another option completely out of left field or I should say, over the pond. London is now an option for the Raiders. It is being discussed for them to play [there] next year. They are still trying to figure it out. Other owners have brought it up to the Raiders. The Raiders are discussing it. Do they play four home games, four away games, and back and forth? Again, the Raiders don't have a home next year. London is a possibility as of now."

The Raiders have played two previous games in Wembley Stadium in London as part of the NFL International Series. In 2014, they lost to the Dolphins 38-14, and earlier this season, they lost to the Seahawks 27-3.

On Friday, the San Francisco Giants confirmed that they are talking to the Raiders about allowing them to use AT&T Park for one season.

How Raiders' Nick Kwiatkoski showed his value with Bears last season

When opportunity knocked last year for Nick Kwiatkoski, the Chicago Bears’ four-year reserve linebacker, he answered.

With free agency looming, he was put in position to show the rest of the NFL what the Bears privately knew about the high-motor, highly athletic 26-year-old: It wasn’t a lack of ability that prevented Kwiatkoski from being a full-time starter, it was that the Bears had some of the best players in football at his position.

In Kwiatkoski, the Bears’ depth chart was hiding a starting caliber linebacker. And not just a situational one, but the highly coveted three-down kind who can play the run and the pass.

All of which he showed in an eight-game stint at the end of the 2019 season. He had 50 tackles, two sacks, four tackles for loss and four pass breakups to firmly establish himself as a valuable free agent target.
